Enmaa Center for Researches & Studies (ECRS ) is an independent Iraqi think tank founded in 2011. ECRS was established to promote, conduct, and foster research, study, and analysis relating to the current political, economic, and social developments in Iraq through direct polling, data collection, and analysis. ECRS’s activities involve research, training-education, and dissemination of information.
ECRS seeks to increase knowledge and understanding relating to democracy, rule of law, religious tolerance, government transparency, and human rights. ECRS encourages and involves both policymakers and citizens in its workshops, seminars, and conferences and exchanges skills and experiences with other local, regional, and international think tanks.
PAX is the largest peacebuilding NGO in the Netherlands. It originally focused on supporting campaigns against nuclear arms, the organization is now active in many countries worldwide, including in Europe, South America, Africa, and the Middle East.
Since 2001, PAX has been active in Iraq, working with Iraqi and international partners on inclusive peace building. The Iraq program is approached from a conflict transformation perspective: Harmful norms that sustain and create conflict are addressed and transformed into constructive and inclusive norms. These norms entail inter-community dynamics (horizontal relations) as well as citizen-state dynamics (vertical relations). Together with IILHR, PAX implements projects on legislative reform and the (political) empowerment of youth.
The Ceasefire Centre for Civilian Rights is an international initiative to develop civilian-led monitoring of violations of international humanitarian law or human rights and to secure accountability and reparation for those violations. Ceasefire works in conflict-affected states around the world to empower civilians to claim their rights.
